Learning and assessment
A variety of teaching methods appropriate to the learning outcomes of the individual modules are employed throughout the programme. The learning activities include lectures, workshops and directed study.
Core modules are dedicated to developing generic key skills, specialism practice and project management experience. The specialist modules relating to materials chemistry include lectures, workshops and use of specialist software packages under the instruction of a team of interdisciplinary specialists in the area.
The modules are assessed through course work (problem solving exercises, project plan, training plan), oral presentations and formal exams.
These progressively focus on student-centred approaches to learning and will reflect increasing reliance on independent responsibility for learning. In this way you will develop the attributes needed for life-long learning and continued professional development.
